I agree that background checks are needed. For the purposes of seeing if their married, if they have criminal history or maybe a sex offender. We have to be safe.
I have to agree with this, especially if we meet someone from one of the internet social sites. Even the cute guy in the grocery line could be bad (Oh, I hope so...) or really dangerous (better be sure he is not). I think a date background search makes sense. It just that I think it costs like $40 for a background check, and that makes him an expensive date before I even went out with him. Or, it was a really cheap date compared to the cost of what evil guys do to disappeared girls.
Then I see websites that say a
thorough background check
will yield results from a broad range of records: driver’s license, credit records, personal acquaintances, character references, criminal records, education records, court records, worker’s compensation claims. I wonder how they get all that information.
Before too much kissing and feeling goes on, I tell him that I think it is good ethics to give blood at the American Red Cross. Then we go volunteer to give blood on a lunch date. And, guess what. ARC will check his blood for a dozen different diseases. If the ARC likes his blood, then I feel more safe getting passionate with him.

If money is tight, however, instant checks are perfect, as they are a good deal cheaper than more extensive screenings can be, and also, as the name implies, they are instant. In seconds the information you need can be right in front of your eyes, telling you exactly what you wanted to know.
That is so important. I would never have dated my ex if I had know what I found out only later through a background check. And it becomes really important if you run a
tenant screening background search
on someone you want to rent to. OMG! you could be dating a person with a violent background, or you could be renting and living next door to a criminal. Only later did i find out that my boyfriend had a violent history of abusing women. Now, I try to do a background search before I go anywhere alone with a new date. Until then, I always meet them in a public place, until I think they're worth the trouble to run a background search on them.
A free criminal background search online should always be done. You always want to make sure you aren’t dating a criminal or at least know this. You can easily avoid making a big mistake by doing a bit of research beforehand. Everyone should do it and not just blindingly trust your date or a dating site profile.
Sometimes a free people search and background check is not enough. But we should all do it nonetheless. It’s easy to do, it’s free and it could show us things we couldn’t have considered, so why not do it for every date?
I would never take in a new tenant without doing a tenant background search first. I’ve had my share of surprises in the past and one of them ended up with the police having to come over and arrest the tenant, so no thank you. A proper, free background check will save you a lot of trouble.
